Really like what you did with the image amica9. The rich earth tones are very pleasing to look at.

Re: Windmills anyone?

Nice picture.

I search free textured backgrounds in Google.com

Start Open image - background
Add sky background - new layer
Set blending change - Multiply
Set texturizer filter
Adjust shadows /highlights -- more lighten

A little mix of everything topping it off with some play with Xero's Caravaggio filter.

Nice find Amica and great renditions by everyone. I used Topaz Adjust, Impressionist and some texture layers.
